Yes, this is the bar on top of the hotel where Sleep No More takes place, but you aren’t going to have to wear a mask here. This is a laid-back rooftop bar with some nice shrubbery and plenty of places to sit. It’s also one of your best drinking options in Chelsea (especially when you want to hang outdoors). Sure, the Frying Pan is only a few blocks away, but this bar feels less like a frat party. Stop by for dinner, drinks, or a serve-yourself brunch.

Suggested by our writers
A.R.T. is the rooftop bar at the Arlo Nomad, and it’s pretty low-key for how nice the views are. Stop by for a drink before a show at MSG.
The Rum House
The Rum House is a popular cocktail bar at the bottom of the Edison Hotel in Midtown West.
